...to BTW and thanks for the contribution. It appears your image is better than the one previously loaded, but it does need that template filled, specifically with the source and "fair use" comment added in. Thanks in advance for providing those.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 12:51, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
- Hey, thanks.
- How do I edit that? The file: page already shows that information, it seems to be independant of the image itself. I only see that comment for my new upload left it out, but no button to edit that. Sorry, it's the first time editing a Wiki for me and all this is very, very confusing... --Haarp 15:51, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
Oh dear. Anybody reading this? I've uploaded a higher res gif for the Kingfisher, thinking it would adjust the extension to gif from jpg. I reverted my mistake. How would I go about adjusting this to be a proper gif file? I still have some higher res scans that I would like to upload.
Also, where would one go to discuss these things and ask questions? --Haarp 06:26, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
- You can only upload a new version of an image of the same extension; different extensions are different files, and within articles, the extension is spelled out when including a file. To swap out jpg images for gif images, you'd therefore need to alter all references in the articles as well.
- As for general questions of this sort, you might want to try the "Contact an Admin" section: BattleTechWiki:Administrators

- And as a follow-on to Frabby, you can see where a pic is linked easily enough. If you go to the image file itself, you'll see a page section named "File links". These are wikilinked to the pages using that exact image. (Ex: File:Kingfisher.jpg is on both the Kingfisher & Faction List Blood Spirit articles.) From there, you can change the wikicode for the image to match that of the new extension.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 12:28, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
